Grenfell campaigners and Labour slam ministers for failing to meet deadline for removal of flammable cladding
THE Tory government was slammed today after it failed to meet its own deadline for removing all flammable cladding from buildings.
There are still about 300 buildings covered in aluminium composite material (ACM) cladding, three years on from the anniversary this Sunday of the Grenfell Tower fire that killed 72 people.
In July 2019, then Housing Secretary James Brokenshire set a deadline of June 2020 for all Grenfell-style cladding to be removed and replaced on tower blocks.
